Vendors from the expanded Appalachian area are encouraged to apply and participate in our festival. The State of North Carolina requires that all festival vendors obtain an North Carolina Sales Tax Number and display it in their booth on the day of the festival. You can obtain a free North Carolina Sales Tax Number online by visiting the North Carolina Department of Revenue Website. If you already have a North Carolina Sales Tax Identification Number, there is no need to re-apply.
